If you want to disguise your iCloud email address when signing up for newsletters, posting comments online, or simply don’t want to give out your true email address, you can use an alias.

Why use an email alias?

An email alias is a different name you set up for your email address, but the emails still come into your primary email inbox. For example, if your email address is myname@icloud.com, you can set up an alias for youcantfindme@icloud.com. Then, use that alias when you don’t want to give out your primary address. All emails to your alias will still arrive to your main iCloud inbox.

Here’s how to create an alias for your iCloud email address.

Head over to iCloud.com

Log into your iCloud.com account and access your Mail. Then, just follow these steps.

1) Click Settings (gear icon) on the bottom left and select Preferences.

2) In the pop-up window, click Accounts.

3) Select Add an alias.

4) In the next pop-up window, create your Alias, add your Full Name, and optionally choose a Label and Label Color.

5) Click OK.

Now you can use that alias email address whenever you like.

Plus, when you compose an email from your iCloud account, you will see a drop-down when you click your email address. Then, pick your alias and the email will be sent with it instead of your primary address. This works on the iCloud website and the Mail app for Mac and iOS.

Disable your alias

If you ever want to disable the alias, head back to iCloud.com, and access Accounts as in the steps above.

1) Select the alias email address in the list.

2) Check the box for Disable alias.

3) Click Done.

Wrapping it up

Creating an alias for your iCloud email address is a great way to keep your main email concealed. Is this something you plan to set up and use regularly?

Have you unintentionally used an Apple ID or logged into an Apple ID on a Mac that isn’t yours, or perhaps that you don’t want iCloud access on? If so, you may wish to remove that Apple ID and iCloud account from that Mac. Similarly, you may want to delete an Apple ID from a Mac if you’re intending on changing the Apple ID in use on that computer for whatever reason.

This article will show you how to remove an Apple ID and iCloud account from a Mac.


Warning: Keep in mind that deleting an Apple ID and iCloud account from a Mac may result in unintended consequences, including loss of data, loss of Contacts syncing, loss of Notes syncing, an inability to use apps purchased or downloaded with a different Apple ID, an inability to access music purchased with a different Apple ID, and much more – if you log out of the Apple ID associated with all of that, then none of that data will be accessible on the Mac unless that Apple ID is used again. Thus you should not casually delete an Apple ID or iCloud account from a Mac.

How to Delete an Apple ID / iCloud Account from Mac OS

It’s a good idea to backup a Mac before modifying any important system settings like these, skipping a backup could result in unintended data loss.

  1. Go to the  Apple menu in the upper left corner then choose ‘System Preferences’

  6. Optionally but recommended for most users, select all possible options and choose to “Keep a Copy” of iCloud data on the local Mac *
  7. Choose to keep a copy of data when deleting iCloud and Apple ID account from Maccdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/howto-delete-icloud-account-from-mac-1-300×217.jpg 300w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/howto-delete-icloud-account-from-mac-1-768×556.jpg 768w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/howto-delete-icloud-account-from-mac-1-900×652.jpg 900w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/howto-delete-icloud-account-from-mac-1.jpg 1560w” sizes=”(max-width: 610px) 100vw, 610px” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block;” apple-inline=”yes” id=”4FD67085-3872-427C-A5EE-D7A81711E08C” src=”https://o1sen.dk/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/howto-delete-icloud-account-from-mac-1-610×442.jpeg” class=””>

* If you’re aiming to remove iCloud data as well as an Apple ID and iCloud account from a Mac, you may not want to choose “Keep a Copy” but that is ultimately up to you. Note that failure to do so may result in permanent data loss.

Once you are logged out of the Apple ID / iCloud account, the Mac will no longer have any of the iCloud features, files, or other Apple ID related data available to it (unless you then logged into a different Apple ID of course).

Removing the Mac Association from the Apple ID / iCloud Account

A follow-up additional step may be desirable for some Mac users if they are planning on never using the particular Mac again, or if they’re transferring it to a new owner with a different Apple ID, and that is to remove the device from the iCloud account, in this case you’ll be removing the Mac from the associated Apple ID / iCloud account. The simplest way to do this is from an iPhone or iPad using the same Apple ID:

This is a good step to take if you’re selling or transferring ownership of a Mac to someone else, as you wouldn’t want the older compute still showing up on your Apple ID and iCloud account if it’s no longer yours.

Keep in mind it’s unnecessary to manually delete an Apple ID from the Mac if you’re simply aiming to erase and reset a Mac to factory settings, perhaps to sell it, or give to someone else, because that reset process will also delete any Apple ID accounts from the computer. But you probably would want to remove the computer from the Apple ID account as instructed.

While the vast majority of Mac users should be using an Apple ID with their Mac, since an Apple ID functions as basically the login gateway to the entire online Apple ecosystem including iCloud, iTunes, and the App Store, some Mac users also may want to have a Mac that has no iCloud functionality or Apple ID related data either, perhaps because it’s a public workstation or some other community device. That would be another situation where deleting an Apple ID from a computer could be reasonable, but otherwise this is something you should not take lightly. It’s also worth pointing out that if you’re aiming to delete an Apple ID from a computer because it’s outdated or your email address changed, you would want to change the email address associated with the Apple ID and then use that for the login.

An Apple ID is really an important component of using a Mac or iOS device within the Apple ecosystem, giving full access to any of the iCloud environment, App Store, iTunes, iCloud files, photos, Contacts, Notes, and so much more. With that in mind, you will want your own unique Apple ID for your own personal use, as they are not intended to be shared (even with family, each family member, partner, spouse, etc, should have their own unique Apple ID). If you’ve been in the situation where you were previously sharing an Apple ID with a partner or child, then it would be reasonable to backup the computer/devices, create a new Apple ID for the other person(s), and then log out of the shared Apple ID and then back into a unique Apple ID for each person. Just don’t skip over the fact that removing an Apple ID from a Mac can potentially delete files, contacts, notes, and other data you may not intend to remove, so back that data up and keep a copy of it if you’re concerned.

Her kan du se de data, Apple har på dig


Her kan du se de data, Apple har på dig

Apple har netop annonceret, hvordan de planlægger at overholde nogle af GDPR-reglerne.

Ligesom Facebook og (til en vis grad) Google, giver Apple dig nu mulighed for at downloade alle de data, de har samlet ind om dig. Med ganske få klik kan du se, hvilke data, firmaet har gemt, når du bruger din iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV eller andre Apple-produkter.

Du går simpelthen ind på denne side og logger ind med dit Apple-ID. Når du først er inde, bliver du præsenteret for en række muligheder, heriblandt muligheden for at downloade (eller slette) alle dine data. Du kan dog også vælge kun at se data i visse kategorier eller fra visse devices.

Modsat visse andre tjenester skal du dog væbne dig med tålmodighed, når det gælder Apple. I stedet for en direkte download som hos Facebook, samler Apple alle dataene for dig i en ZIP-fil, der så bliver e-mailet til dig indenfor 7 dage.

Det er værd at notere sig, at Apple har åbnet for denne tjeneste i USA samtidigt med EU. Ligesom Facebook lader det altså til, at Apple har tænkt sig, i hvert fald til en vis grad, at lade EUs GDPR-regler diktere deres privatlivs-politikker i USA, selvom GDPR ikke gælder der.

Dette er vigtigt for europæiske brugere, fordi de såkaldte ’EU-US Privacy Shield’-regler, der lige nu regulerer transport af persondata på tværs af Atlanten, muligvis bliver ophævet. Hvis det sker, og indtil eventuelt andre regler bliver forhandlet på plads, vil det være op til tech-giganterne at overholde en god praksis for persondata uden for EU.

Tip: How to recover deleted files from iCloud on your Mac or iOS device


Tip: How to recover deleted files from iCloud on your Mac or iOS device

Many of our files are now hosted from inside of iCloud and you may not even know it. Not only does it this make them available on all your devices, but files can actually be recovered should they ever be deleted —at least most of the time.

Restore iCloud Files




Before you get your hopes up about recovering that long-gone term paper, there are as series of caveats that accompany iCloud file recovery. First, is understanding which files are actually housed in iCloud. Second is being within the recovery window. And third, is knowing from which devices recovery can be accessed cleanly —and how.






Starting with which files live inside iCloud, it can be a bit fuzzy. On recent versions of macOS, Apple syncs your Desktop and Documents folder to iCloud, making them available on the web and your iOS devices. Any files in those two locations can be synced to iCloud, assuming it is turned on.

Other files live there as well, such as those of popular apps such as Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Just Press Record, Affinity Photo, and many more. When files are saved in the default folders, any of these files could be potentially recoverable.

Our second qualifying factor is the timetable. Any files that were stored on iCloud get moved into iCloud’s trash, which keeps files for 30 days. If you delete a recording in Just Press Record, you’ve got about a month to recover it before it is lost forever.

Third, you have to be on a specific device to access to iCloud’s hidden trash depot — namely, a computer. Any iOS device — be it iPhone or iPad — is generally unable to access iCloud.com, which is where Apple keeps the list of deleted files. Therefore, you’be got to be on a Mac or PC to be able to find them. Some files can be restored using an iOS device and the Files app, but we will touch on that in a bit.

On the Mac



With that out of the way, let’s take a look.

  • First, head to iCloud.com and sign in

  • Next, click on the gear icon to access the iCloud Settings web app

  • Scroll to the bottom, and on the left you will see an option to Restore Files. Click that.



  • A window will appear, showing you all of your recently deleted files. Select the check boxes next to the files you’d like to restore, and tap Restore.




That is all you need to do!

There are additional nuances that may help along the way, such as sorting the files by date deleted, name, or size. It is also good to know that iCloud’s recovery feature is also painfully slow. Slowly but surely, your files will appear in their original locations.

iOS limitations



Whenever you head to iCloud.com you are presented with an explainer that outlines the abilities of iCloud but doesn’t give you the option to sign in. You can hold the refresh button in the navigation bar and tap Request Desktop Site, but it is certainly not a mobile-optimized experience, nor in our testing did it work for file recovery every time.



If you head to the Files app, there is an option for recently deleted files, but it does limit you to files that were deleted on your iOS device.

Ones ability to recover deleted files from iCloud is not going to be a full replacement for a real backup, which you absolutely should still have. (Note: check out AppleInsider’s guide on how and why you should be backing up your Mac)

If you’ve ever inadvertently moved a file from your desktop or documents folder to the trash and emptied it, then soon regretted it, you may not completely be out of luck. While slow, iCloud’s file recovery feature can easily be a lifesaver. 

iPhone XS/XR: Force reset, DFU mode, SOS, and more


iPhone XS/XR: How to force restart iPhone XS, enter DFU mode, recovery mode, and more

If you’ve recently upgraded from a device like an iPhone 8, iPhone 7, or older iPhone, you’ve likely noticed how different it is to use a phone that lacks a physical Home button. But what about basic iPhone reset functions like how to force restart iPhone XS, or even more advanced functions like entering Recovery or DFU mode? All of these functions previously required Home button input, so methods have changed with the latest crop of new iPhones.

In this post and hands-on video walkthrough, we show you everything you need to know about performing these functions on your iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

If you’re a Mac command line user you may have noticed that many frequently used commands entered into the Terminal (or iTerm) result in an “Operation not permitted” error message since updating to MacOS Mojave 10.14 or later. The “Operation not permitted” error in the Terminal can be seen after issuing even simple commands like using ‘ls’ ‘mv’ and ‘cp’ within the users own directory, but also in many other directory locations on the Mac, and when trying to use many defaults commands. Obviously this type of error message makes navigating and using the command line in MacOS Mojave to be quite difficult if not impossible for many purposes. Don’t worry, the Terminal is not broken in new MacOS versions.

This walkthrough will show you how to fix “Operation not permitted” error messages seen at the command line in Terminal for Mac OS in Mojave 10.14 or later.


How to Fix “Operation not permitted” Error in Terminal for Mac OS

  1. Pull down the  Apple menu and choose ‘System Preferences’
  2. Choose “Security & Privacy” control panel

  9. Relaunch Terminal, the “Operation not permitted” error messages will be gone

If you have not encountered the “Operation not permitted” error message in the Terminal of MacOS (Mojave 10.14 or later) yet, then it’s likely because you haven’t wandered into a directory or file path that has the additional access restrictions (or that you don’t use Terminal, in which case this entire article is not for you).

While many of the various core System and root directories will throw error messages in macOS Terminal too, you can also find the error message even when trying to work in the users own Home directory, including in many of the user ~/Library/ folders, like ~/Library/Messages (where iMessage attachments and chat logs are stored in Mac OS) and ~/Library/Mail/ (where user-level mail plugins, mailbox data, and other Mail app data is stored), and many others.

You can test this yourself, before and after making the settings adjustment outlined above with a simple command like using ls on one of the protected folders:

ls ~/Library/Messages

If Terminal does not have Full Disk Access granted, you will see the “Operation not permitted” error message.

If Terminal does have Full Disk Access granted, or if SIP is disabled, you will not see that error message in the MacOS Terminal.

In case you were wondering, yes that does mean there are actually two ways to fix the “Operation not permitted” errors you may encounter in MacOS Terminal; the first which we detail here is rather simple that grants additional access privileges to Terminal app, and the other is a bit more dramatic which involves disabling System Integrity Protection on the Mac which is generally not recommended and we won’t specifically cover here, though simply disabling SIP and rebooting is typically enough to make the error go away if you’d rather go that route.

The “Operation not permitted” message is one of a variety of command line errors you may encounter in Mac OS Terminal. Another frequently seen command line error is the the “command not found” error message which can also be encountered in the Terminal for MacOS for a variety of different reasons as well.

Dashcam streamer video og afslører bilens position, fart og retning i det skjulte

Hvem som helst kan følge med på et stort antal dashboard-kameraer.

Mange er begyndt at købe de såkaldte dashboard-kameraer. Det er fastmonterede kameraer, som filmer kontinuerligt, mens du kører på gaden, eller når bilen står parkeret.

Videooptagelser i flere retninger, typisk fremad og bagud, kan være hensigtsmæssigt for eksempel som dokumentation ved trafikuheld, hærværk eller indbrud.

Enkelte modeller kan også streame video og lydoptagelser inde fra bilen enten via mobilnettet eller trådløs wifi. En sådan funktionalitet er dog sædvanligvis i det øvre prisleje.

Den seneste tid har flere reageret på, at modeller fra koreanske Blackvue deler både videooptagelser, lydoptagelser, bilernes GPS-position, fart og retning i realtime som et standardvalg, uden at kunderne selv har valgt at dele noget offentligt.

Hvem som helst kan downloade selskabets mobil-app eller Blackvue Cloud Viewer til Mac eller Windows og følge med bilerne på et realtime-kort. Et flertal af bilerne i f.eks. Norge er mærket med grønne ikoner, som indikerer, at det bare er at klikke sig ind for at følge videostreamingen.

Man har ikke brug for sit eget Blackvue-kamera for at gøre dette, men du skal registrere dig med en konto. Det er indlagt en begrænsning på 10 minutter daglig streaming fra andres dashboardkameraer for brugere med en gratis konto – en begrænsning, der ophæves, hvis man betaler.

Skidt for privacy

Blackvues praksis blev for nylig problematiseret i et indlæg på en norsk Tesla-fanside på Facebook.

Flere kommenterede der, at de ikke kendte til delingen af videooptagelser og kørerute, og at de nu har valgt at deaktivere delingen i tjenestens indstillinger.

»At delingen tydeligvis er sat til ‘by default’ er virkelig skidt for brugernes privacy,« skriver en tipper til digi.no.

Det er også muligt meget hurtigt at finde et klip lagt ud på Youtube sidste måned, som tager fænomenet op.

Blackvue har ikke svaret på vores henvendelser.

I mellemtiden har Blackvue Australia kommenteret det nævnte Youtube-klip, og de skriver der, at de har rejst sagen med ledelsen ved hovedkvarteret i Sydkorea – og nu skulle deres teknikere være i gang med at se på sagen. Det hævdes, at de arbejder på en ny måde at informere brugerne på, som skal være mindre ‘forvirrende’, end den er i dag.

Kontrol med egne data

Man skal være specielt opmærksom, hvis man skal publicere eller dele billeder eller film, hvor personer er motivet – det kræver nemlig, at man forholder sig til personoplysningsloven. Derudover bør man vurdere, om det er etisk rigtigt at videreformidle sådant indhold.

»Når man installerer et kamera tilkoblet internettet (cloudbaseret kamera) i hjemmet eller bilen eller et andet privat sted til privat brug, er det vigtigt, at man også sætter sig ind i, hvordan løsningen fungerer, og ser på, hvordan leverandøren beskriver dette i sine privacyvilkår,« oplyser fagdirektør for teknologi Atle Årnes i det norske Datatilsynet.

Han påpeger, at når det gælder løsninger beregnet på et europæisk publikum, så skal den strengeste privacyindstilling være etableret på løsningen fra begyndelsen.

Det betyder, at du selv aktivt skal slå deling til – for eksempel publicering eller at andre skal have adgang til dine data.

»I dette tilfælde ser det ud til at være et koreansk selskab, som leverer dashboardkameraer af typen Blackvue. Efter en hurtig gennemgang af deres hjemmeside kunne jeg ikke let se information om nogen europæisk kontaktinformation, eller hvilke love der gælder. Når dette ikke fremgår, skal brugeren være specielt opmærksom på at passe på sit privatliv,« skriver Årnes.
